Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has great potentials in changing the fragile and complex enterprise networks. One operational challenge to SDN deployment is the settlement of legacy switches. A hybrid SDN consisting of both SDN and legacy switches may be a tradeoff. Nevertheless most of the current SDN control planes can not handle legacy switches. To overcome this problem, we present HybridFlow, a lightweight control plane for hybrid SDN. HybridFlow can abstract a hybrid network into a… CONTINUE READING
